We absolutely love this cup, in fact since purchasing the red one I'm reviewing we've purchased 6 more in various colors. Not only is this cup really cute, it's incredibly functional. Before you ask, yes it leaks. In my experience most sippy cups do, if they don't they've been too hard for my daughter to drink from. I wasn't looking for a cup that had zero leakage, I was, however, looking for a USA made, BPA free, dishwasher safe, plastic cup with a lid and valve-free straw that would be easy for my daughter to hold and drink from. Check, check, and check. The handles are a great size for little hands to get a good grip on, and I love that they're removable for cleaning. The valve-free straw allows my little girl to get as much liquid as she likes without the complicated mouth movements the valved variety require. There are clear markings on the side so I know how many ounces she's getting. I also like the fact that the straw comes apart, I feel like it's easier to clean. The straw is also wider than most other sippy straws and that makes it easier to clean, too. It's durable also. These cups have been dropped and thrown with no damage at all. If your kid turns it upside down, yes you'll have liquid on the floor, but this cup is amazing. It is the only sippy style cup we use now. If you're on the fence this mom says buy! Before Lollacup my daughter wouldn't drink anything except breast milk straight from the source. We tried tons of different brands and styles of sippy cups and this is the only one she liked.
